Abstract

Madhya Pradesh is also referred as soybean state and thus had a huge production of soybean by-products in addition to the main crop production, which is utilized for oil production. Soybean straw is one of them and on the basis of its huge availability it was incorporated in the diet of crossbred cows and its effect was observed on dry matter intake and milk production. The experiment was conducted on 12 cross bred cows by dividing them into three equal groups as per the completely randomized design on the basis of their milk production. One of the groups was served as control and fed concentrate mixture as per the production requirements (NRC, 2001) and ad-libitum wheat straw. The second and third groups were fed similarly but having replaced their wheat straw with soybean straw at the level of 50 and 75%, respectively. The feeding was continued for a period of three months and dry matter intake and milk production of the crossbred cows was monitored daily. The study indicates that incorporation of soybean straw had no negative effects either on dry matter intake or on the milk production of cross bred cows and thus it may be concluded that the soybean straw may be replaced by wheat straw up to 75% in the diet of cross bred cows for short duration without any adverse effect on animal’s intake as well as on lactation performance.
